DJ Priya and Gracie T announce departure from Daytimers collective

Both DJs have announced their departure from the South Asian collective.

Sharing the news yesterday (15 May) via Instagram, DJ Priya wrote, “It’s been fun but after 2 years I have decided to leave Daytimers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to every single one of you. Thank you for coming to the shows, dancing with me, introducing me to your families and helping me champion a more inclusive community.”

Though a reason for her departure wasn’t included in the announcement, the selector had taken to her Instagram story last week to state that she was leaving the collective as a “last resort because my mental health is suffering”.
